So i left and about 15 or 20 minutes later i went to apologize. she seemed to accept my apology and was letting me pat her. i stood up and reached my arm out to pat her a last time and she jumped up and like attacked my arm. I was just wondering why this happened, was me putting my arm out bad?. iv'e always kind of wondered if she did it to get even?. Like maybe she saw me putting out my arm as an offer for her to get pay back?. if you know why she did this pls say. i was just thinking back on old memories and wondering.
